Oatmeal lace cookies
Handel and Haydn bassoonist Andrew Schwartz won third place, too, with these chocolate lace cookie sandwiches. He calls them "O Cookie, Where Is Thy Victory?"
|1||cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted|
|1||cup granulated sugar|
|1||cup light brown sugar|
|1||teaspoon almond extract|
|2 1/2||cups old-fashioned oats|
|1||cup finely chopped walnuts|
|1||teaspoon baking powder|
2. In a bowl, combine the butter and granulated and brown sugars. Stir well. Add the eggs, one at a time, followed by the almond extract.
3. Stir in the oats, walnuts, and baking powder.
4. Drop the batter by teaspoonfuls 3 inches apart on the baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes or until lightly browned on the edges. Allow to cool completely before removing from foil.
|12||ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped|
|4||tablespoons butter, cut up|
2. Choose 2 cookies that are similar in size. Spread a thin layer of chocolate in the center of the bottom side of 1 round. Top with the other cookie and squeeze them together. Let the cookies sit until the chocolate hardens. Adapted from Andrew Schwartz
